-Mutations are spontaneous sudden changes that occurs randomly in the genetic make up of an organisms.
-Frameshift mutation is a type of mutation that results from addition or deletion of a base pair or base pairs in the DNA molecule of a gene. This type of mutation is caused by insertions or deletions of nucleotides or base pairs that are not divisible by three.
-Insertions involves insertion of one or more extra nucleotides in a chain of DNA. While deletions involves deleting or removal of nucletoides from DNA chain.
Mutation that leads to the change in the reading frame of the genetic code from the point of deletion until the end of the gene.
A frameshift mutation is caused as a result of the deletion or addition of one or more base pairs in the DNA segment which changes the base pair sequence from point onwards of the deleted segment.
A codon is read as a triplet of nucleotides. Any deletion which is not divisible by three would shift the reading frame and result in a completely or partially different protein compared to the original one after translation. The degree of alteration of protein depends on the site at which deletion has occurred. An occurrence of deletion in the early sequence of a DNA segment would result in a more altered protein in comparison to a deletion in the later sequence.
The altered reading frame would specify different amino acids leading to different protein formation. The frameshift mutation may also alter the stop codon. As a result, the polypeptide synthesized might be either long or short, and non-functional.
The probability of frameshift mutation to occur is higher in regions with repeated sequences. When the addition or deletion of the base pairs is not rectified by the DNAmismatch repairsystem, the mutations are more prone to be pathogenic and might cause cancer. This is because the tumor does not get a signal to stop growing.
it would impact people because many communities count on accurate weather predictions fo determine, when to sow seeds for growth, when best to work on construction projects, how likely will it be that they need to act if there is flooding. hope this helps
A regulon comprises of a group of operons that are controlled by the same regulatory protein referred to as a regulator which could act as a repressor or activator.
Regulons in bacterial cells are referred to as the fundamental unit of the response system. Regulons are majorly used when referring to prokaryotes that have their genome organized to operons, although this term is not limited to that. The genes that are found in a regulon are arranged into two or more operons at different regions on the chromosome.
